Vegetarian Sundays: Fresh Chilean Summer Salad

A few weeks back I mentioned I would share my super easy recipe for Chilean Summer Salad. Well, with summer almost gone I thought it was high time I share that recipe while the tomatoes are still tender and the onions sweet.

1 LB Tomatoes (I like Heirloom Varieties)
1 Whole Yellow Onion
1 Cu Hot, Boiling Water
1/4 Cup Olive Oil
Salt to Taste

Peel your onion


 Slice your onion

 Place all of your onion in a bowl and cover with boiling hot water

Cover with a towel and let stand for 10-15 minutes. You are lightly blanching the onion so all of that onion-i-ness tones down, but you maintain the crispness.

Slice your tomatoes and place a large bowl

Drain your onions and rinse with cool water

Add onions to your tomatoes in the bowl

 Add  the olive oil and salt to taste

 Stir well until all ingredients are mixed. Place in the refrigerator until chilled. Serve as a side to tacos, rice and beans or any other deliciousness you can think of!
